2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
dark yellow pour with a very large off-white head. Aroma is of malts and citrus. Taste is mildly sweet, with lots of malts. A slightly creamy finish makes this beer go down smooth. Other than that, this beer is not bad, but nothing special here.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle and served in a pilsner glass (sort of): Standard clean golden hue with a good lasting frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of grassy noble hops, grainy malts, and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts with a hint of bready malt sweetness before the slight hop character is found. There is a note of corn adjunct but it not at the level of some macros. What is missing here is any level of crispness and honesltly refreshment. Quite tepid and boring. Hardly bad but hardly a dream either... next.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by nuplastikk: Pours a transparent bright golden with a thin wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of grainy pale malt and a touch of Saaz hops. Body starts semi-sweet and grainy with a touch of adjuncty flavor before a slightly drier watery finish. Pretty drinkable, but dull.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle courtesy of nuplastikk. Yellow color with a lasting white head. Pure sweaty gym socks aroma. watery flavor with some sweat corn and dirty yeast. Thin, watery body with crisp carbonation. Whats up with that aroma? once you get past it though, this isnít crazy bad, just not really pleasant, and it did look nice.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
From the bottle.. Nice golden colour with a thin white head. Sour aroma and a good mouth feel. Flavor mostly of wet straw. Palate is domanated by cheapness. This beer sucks.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark Yellow gold with no head to speak of. Aroma of light, earthy grain and malt. Flavor is sweet malt and crisp grain. Finish of herbal hops and malt. Light but tingly carbonation with a very light body. Not horrible but somehow it just never came together for me.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark golden body w/ low carbonation. Surprisingly citrusy aroma - orange and lime zest. The flavor takes on the same citrus over medium-toast wheat bread. Pretty dry stuff and it takes on some astringency.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Received 12-oz bottle from distributors sample pack. Pours a clear golden blonde brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates nearly clean. Aroma of golden grain malt, a touch of creamed corn, grassy hops, and a touch of hay. Taste is light bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, grassy hops and some dried nuts. Finish is metallic, watery with a grassy hop aftertaste that quickly disappears. A brewmasters dream? Oh well, some people fantasies is another persons nightmare.
